Novus Food Drive KICK-OFF 2014
WELCOME! WELCOME! WELCOME! To the 2014 Novus Food Drive! We are so excited to be a part of such an amazing opportunity, put on by the St. Louis Area Foodbank, to help local kids find Freedom from Summer Hunger. Today, Novus HQ employees received a lunch bag at their desk with information about the 2014 Novus Food Drive, along with a letter of support from our CEO Francois Fraudeau.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank recently reported that for 1 in 8 people in the St. Louis area, hunger is a reality. During the summer months when children do not have access to school meals, the hunger only escalates.
OUR GOAL is to donate 30,000 lbs. of food to the St. Louis Area Foodbank between May 27th and June 13th.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank needs your help!
· How can I help?
o You can donate non-perishable food items OR donate through cash contributions.
o Which is more helpful? Due to the purchasing power and not-for-profit status of the St. Louis Area Foodbank, cash contributions are actually MORE impactful than food purchased at retail prices.
· Where can I donate?
o Red donation barrels will be located in the research wing and on the 1st and 2nd floors near the stairwell.
o You can also donate online at http://vad.aidmatrix.org/vadxml.cfm?driveid=25528
o OR provide a check payable to St. Louis Area Foodbank to Lisa Ervin
PLEASE consider helping local kids find Freedom from Summer Hunger and GIVE!
